I currently use FCP X for editing videos of live band performances. I have been dissapointed in Toast Titanium for aurthoring the resulting Blu-ray videos because of the limited menu options.......I will often have 30 separate videos on a Blu-ray disk (one per song).
I am considering buying Premiere Pro CS6 to obtain Encore because I have been told it provides more complex menu options.
(1) Are you happy with Encore for aurthoring Blu-ray videos?
(2) Would I also need to buy After Effects?
I ask the 2nd question because I have watched an excellent "Authoring with Adobe Encore" tutorial here:
These folks offer some nice looking Menu Kits
but they use After Effects as well as Encore.
Thanks for the help.
The Adobe suite of programs will offer vast improvements over the capabilities you now have using FCPX and Toast. Yes, it's most definitely worth it, especially if you becomes a Creative Cloud subscriber for $50/month. You can cancel or even put your subscription on hold whenever you need to.
